IPhone X users can watch YouTube videos with HDR

According to MacRumors, the iOS users will be able to watch YouTube videos in HDR on iPhone X. However, this feature is not yet available on iPad Pro models.

YouTube has added support for HDR video streaming on the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, a little more than eight months after the feature arrived for select Android smartphones, including the Google Pixel and Samsung Galaxy S8. HDR quality videos also support a wide range of screen sizes and are ideal for larger screens as they offer better quality and greater clarity. The HDR Channel includes videos that can be viewed in HDR on iOS.

In order to make sure that you are viewing an HDR video or if you want to know about the quality of playback, you just need to find a video to play and tap anywhere on that particular video itself. Apple debuted HDR support previous year with the "Super Retina" display in the iPhone X, which became the first HDR OLED display incorporated into one of Apple's smartphones, the report added. Apple's iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus also support HDR but their quality can not match the display quality on the iPhone X. Any HDR video played on the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus can not be deemed as true HDR. However, it should be paired with 4K-enabled TV sets. On YouTube app for Apple TV, the maximum resolution for videos is still at 1920 x 1080 while the 4K resolution is 3840 x 2160 pixels. As reported by 9to5Mac, the document talks about the iPhone X's rear camera in order to get FaceID working.
